The telescopic aerial platform with a load capacity of 136 kg
TeleCrawler13N is a Hinowa telescopic aerial platform, a tracked machine powered by a lithium battery which can reach a working height of 13 m and features a horizontal outreach of 6.4 m. TC13N is the first model of a new series of innovative and efficient machines. It is, in fact, the first telescopic aerial platform fitted with “full electric” crawler tracks; a machine designed to be totally different from the Goldlift, IIIS and Performance IIIS series.
What are its features?
The TeleCrawler13N platform has signature features which highlight the innovative and unique character of this new type of machine:
- It is uniquely compact: without the basket, it measures just 3,698 mm in length, 1,948 mm in height and 748 mm in width. The stabilisation area has been reduced to 2,450 mm x 2,900 mm which allows the platform to be stabilised in the parking space of just one car!
- Load capacity of 136 kg (designed to support, on average, 1 person weighing 80 kg + 56 kg of equipment)
- Automatic telescopic boom extension control when going up/down: the same distance from the wall can be automatically maintained to follow a vertical line up to 9 m, both when going up and down. Thanks to this “scissor” effect, the operator can get on with his work, by remaining automatically flush to the wall, without having to continuously adjust the extension of the telescopic boom manually. This means it is possible to work quickly and easily.
- Greater safety at height since there are no manual controls to operate.
- “Go Home” function: this allows you to automatically and safely close and align the telescopic boom and thus, return the machine to the transport position with just one button. This feature, which was already widely used on platforms with a greater working height, has now been introduced by Hinowa on a 13-m platform as well.
- “Go Back” function: before initiating the “Go Home” function, the machine stores the last working position so that it can automatically return to it with the simple press of a button. This function saves valuable time and significantly increases productivity.
- The undercarriage is constructed by using electric traction motors which allow it to travel on electric power only, without the use of hydraulic oil. The technology with a permanent magnet drive motor guarantees a higher performance compared to traditional electric motors.
- Outstanding efficiency: the “full electric” system is much more efficient compared to the hydraulic system. An increase which allows the use of a more compact lithium-ion battery pack, with a lower energy value, that delivers the same performance as a hydraulic traction platform.
- Safety under all conditions: an additional special feature of electric traction motors is the IP67 protection rating which means that the machine can also work on muddy and dusty ground. Furthermore, the absence of oil in the travel system eliminates any risk of leaks on the ground, ensuring respect for the environment (“zero leakage”).
